Question for written answer
to the Commission
Rule 130
Răzvan Popa (S&D)

 Subject:  Errors in the assessment of Romania's file on the relocation of the EMA

On 30 September 2017, the Commission published its evaluation of the Member States’ bids to host the European Medicines Agency (EMA) following its relocation. On 4 October, the Romanian authorities stressed the fact that the evaluation did not contain certain advantages of relocating the agency in Bucharest, which included, among others, diplomatic status for employees and partners of the agency.

On 12 October, the Commission published the general assessment summary in relation to the relocation of the agency.

In an official letter of 27 October, the Commission recognised its mistakes in dealing with the candidate file on relocating the agency to Bucharest.

Does the assessment(1) contain the important missing information stressed by the Romanian authorities in its communication with the Commission on 4 October?

Was this new, updated assessment sent to the interested parties?
